On April 18, 2023, IDEBATE presented participants with the final online training session: Critical and Systematic Thinking hosted by Dr. Dorothy Tse from the University of Newcastle.
Dr. Dorothy Tse
Senior lecturer Dr. Dorothy Tse works at Edge Hill University in the UK’s Department of Psychology. She holds an honorary fellowship at the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom. She graduated from the University of Edinburgh in the UK with an MSc and a Ph.D. in neuroscience.
Her research as a neuroscientist is focused on understanding the physiology of learning and memory as well as early dementia detection and healthy aging. She has written about memory in a number of scholarly journals, including Science (2007, 2011).
She was chosen to serve on the executive committee of the European Brain and Behaviour Society as a Young Scientist Lead. She is also the group leader for Liverpool’s Early Career Researchers in Neuroscience.
Critical and Systematic Thinking workshop
Participants learned about the problem-solving system, applying critical thinking in real-world settings, evaluating or criticizing material, thinking map analysis, and brainstorming. The program gave insights and practical suggestions that can be implemented in everyday life, particularly for candidates competing in the IDEBATE Season 2 Final Round.
The interactive content has helped the participant understand the concept of thinking out of the box and dealing with problems. Moreover, Dr. Tse gave interesting cases or riddles to get the participants involved in pảticing critical thinking and problem-solving.
As the last training session of IDEBATE season 2, the Critical and Systematic Thinking workshop will hopefully be useful to participants while providing them with the complete experience of competing and learning at the same time. Stay tuned for more helpful workshops in future seasons of IDEBATE!
